Scenic Art

About me

I have had a passion for art and design throughout my life and I graduated from Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts with a Fda in Scenic Art and Prop Making in 2020. During my course I was fortunate enough to complete work experience at Richard Nutbourne Scenic Studios in addition to assisting with puppet making for a TV advert with Brunskill and Grimes.

I am an extremely hard worker and I started my own small business in 2019 selling hand painted and handmade items. I love to base my work around my own interests including animals, food and travelling and hope in the future my work could take me around the world!

I studied Drama throughout my entire school life as well as attending a children's theatre group for 12 years. I enjoy everything to do with theatre and film and am excited for the opportunity to work in such a thriving industry!
